The case of the two year old thoroughbred filly presented here has been diagnosed with and treated for equine gastric ulceration syndrome (EGUS). The results of her examination are documented over a five month period. The patient was finally hospitalised with acute severe colic. Absence of chronic clinical problems common for pyloric stenosis can be attributed to the permanent antiulceration medication of the filly. The diagnosis of pyloric stenosis was made by exploratory laparotomy and confirmed by necropsy.Keywords:
